Stephanie Davis clears up romance rumours after cryptic pic

It's not what it seems!

Stephanie Davis has denied she’s dating again following her split from ex-boyfriend Jeremy McConnell.

The Hollyoaks actress sparked romance rumours this week after posting pics on her Instagram story from what looked like a romantic date with a mystery man.

Steph, 25, enjoyed a meal at her “favourite place” in Liverpool with a friend but masked his face with a flower emoji.

And in the boomerang pic, she kept his identity hidden.

She wrote: “Poor job at this,” followed by laughing face emojis.

She then posted a photo of herself looking very glam in a glittery dress and leather jacket as she sipped on her drink.

Steph wrote: “Thank you so much @gustorestaurants Liverpool for a wonderful night as always.”

Despite it looking like she was on a date, Steph has revealed she just enjoyed dinner with a friend.

Her rep told OK! magazine: “He’s just a friend that she went out for dinner with….  Steph is very happy being single at the moment.”

Stephanie suffered a toxic relationship with her ex Jeremy, with whom she has a one-year-old son, Caben-Albi, after they met in Celebrity Big Brother in 2016.

In August last year Jeremy was sentenced to 20 weeks, suspended for 12 months, and 200 hours’ community service for assaulting Steph.

Steph said she turned to booze to cope with the aftermath of the relationship but checked herself into rehab to deal with her issues.

In February, she spoke about her decision to go to rehab for treatment for alcohol issues.

In an interview on ITV’s Lorraine, she said it was “the best decision of my life”.

Steph is now focusing on being a mum to Caben as well as returning to the acting world.
